Dina Pinos

Bessie Schwarz is the CEO and co-founder of flood-mapping platform Cloud to Street, which helps governments, humanitarian organizations and insurers to effectively respond and prepare for flood disasters. Flooding affects more people than any other natural disaster but, by harnessing global satellites, advanced science and community intelligence, the company can monitor worldwide floods in near real-time and remotely analyze local flood exposure with ease. Founded by Bessie and Beth Tellman at Yale, and seed-funded by Google, Cloud to Street has been used by governments and companies in almost 20 countries.
